  1. ive had the same problem
    i run a mcafee scan, it tracked three
    it was a multipied
    it deleted one and i quarenteened the other 2 coz it couldnt delete em
    i tried to see if limewire would stay closed, it did!
    but task manager still will not open
    im now doing an avg scan to see if it can delete the other 2

    btw ppl
    the worm/virus is called : w32/alan.worm!p2p its a b*sterd of a worm

    now, a few of my applications dont work because it says i am not connected to the internet

    these are:
    windows messenger
    all versions of msn
    remote assistance
    mcafee/avg(cant update)
    and some others,

    however IE and limewire work.

    i cant understand why.

    ive checked internet connection, its perfectly fine

    my firewall isnt blockin them

    checked that dlls are placed correctly

    i run off a netgear wireless connection. the router isnt blocking anything

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.
